CONCERTS, FESTIVALS, PARTIES
Soloists to 10-member student groups perform throughout the year, often free to the public, for community festivals, corporate and organization events, private parties, schools, museums, public sites, hotels, and our annual Calypso Boogie® benefit party. Proficient students perform with professional musicians. Students guide audience members in hands-on steelpan exposure.
Students from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds share a joyous musical experience, with repertoire spanning many genres. They invite audiences to join their infectious energy and move to the rhythm.
See you next year!
